    Looking to track this bottle down - missed it out of the series. If you have one or know of one, can offer a tasty Cantilloon or something else fun for it....
    Grazie - Scott

    Like the avatar... I'm looking for that one too... Although given what you're offering I'd defer to you. Good luck.

    I don't have that one but do have a skawork orange cream stout left if interested.
     
  4. Merlo Stout is rumored to be coming out in their now seasonal (canned) stout rotation. So, don't swing around your Cantilloon just yet...

    Fall: Mole Stout
    Winter: Merlo Stout
    Spring: OA Orange Cream Stout
    Summer: ???

    Don't do it. I opened a few and they were past being anywhere close to good. Guess that 'drink by date' wasn't a joke.

    The Merlot or the Skawork Orange because the Skawork orange was absolutely horrid. Like cigarettes vodka and orange peel blended together. Bleh!

    I would also wait on that trade cause I heard they are brewing another batch of mole stout. Not sure if it will make it up that way or not but if it does not I could get you a 6er of cans.
